Freeport (III.) Journal -Standard Wed., July 3, 1968 Pg. 15 Air Force Pounds Enemy By GEORGE ESPER SAIGON (AP) - U.S. fighter bombers pounded North Vietnam's southern panhandle Tuesday with the largest number of raids in two months while the big B52 strategic bombers kept up the heaviest saturation pounding given the demilitarized zone area in the war. Allied ground troops also were busy below the northern frontier and reported they killed 155 of the enemy in clashes in South Vietnam's northernmost provinces. Along with the record air activity, U.S. headquarters announced the loss of two Air Force fighter-bombers over North Vietnam and a light Army reconnaissance plane and a big Marine helicopter over South Vietnam. Pilot Rescued One of the pilots shot down in North Vietnam, Lt. Col. Jack Modica, 44, of Birmingham, Ala., spent 23 hours in the jungle and was pulled to safety by a "Jolly Green Giant" helicopter as enemy troops were clos ing in on him. The second fighter-bomber was shot down during the search for Modica and its pilot is missing. It was the 860th American plane that the U.S. command has reported lost in the North. The Viet Cong shot down the Marine helicopter, killing all four crewmen, and also killed all nine men in a Marine patrol the helicopter had set down to check out a mountain trail 24 miles northwest of Da Nang. It was the 778th U.S. -helicopter lost in combat in South Vietnam. 149 Missions The Army reconnaissance plane was shot down in the Mekong Delta 50 miles southwest of Saigon, but the pilot escaped with minor injuries, a U.S. spokesman said. U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine fighter-bombers flew 149 missions against North Vietnam Tuesday, the largest number ol raids on the North since 155 were flown on April 22. Like the big B52s dropping their bombs along the demilitarized zone and the southernmost part of North Vietnam, the smaller fighter-bombers hit at enemy supply routes and weapons positions in the continuing campaign to stem the flow o: troops and war material into South Vietnam and to smash en emy artillery harassing allied combat bases just below the DMZ. Supply Barges Hit Pilots reported destroying or damaging 10 supply barges, six trucks and four railroad cars cutting roads in 20 places, si lencing seven antiaircraft sits and badly damaging a surface- to-air missile and transporter i miles above the DMZ. The fliers also reported leav ing 56 fires, indicating direc hits on fuel or ammunition stores. ! The eight-jet B52s, America's biggest bomber, made four more raids on storage depots and artillery sites on both sides of the demilitarized zone's northern border. Heavy Raid This raised to 19 the number of B52 missions along North Vietnam's southern frontier' since Monday. The U.S. Command said it was the heaviest saturation bombing of the war in that sector. Five B52s fly on each mission, each carrying 27 tons of bombs, and 2,500 tons have been dropped in 'the area since Monday. The big bombers also hit at bunkers and caves where North Vietnamese troops headed south pick up supplies and equipment. The B52s drop 500- to 700-pound bombs with delayed fuses designed to explode the bombs after they have penetrated into the cave instead of on impact. In the ground war, the fiercest engagement occurred just north of the old imperial city of Hue, where an enemy force firing mortars and bazooka-type rockets attacked a South Vietnamese battalion command post. Iceland Has New President REYKJAVIK, Iceland — Kristjan Eldjarn, director of the national museum, has won a landslide victory in Iceland's presidential election. Eldjarn, 52, a nationalist who once opposed the presence of U.S. airbases in his country, won 65 per cent of the vote. His total was nearly twice that of Gunnar Thoroddsen, diplomat and son-in-law of outgoing President Asgeir Asgeirs- COPYRIGHT® 1968 By EogU Storei.
